I’m So Sorry and Finally the End of the Quest

Hey everyone… Yeah, sorry I haven’t posted these last few weeks.  I was busy, but I’m not afraid to say that I’m generally slightly depressed and that hasn’t really helped.  It’s nothing new, but it hasn’t affected the blog so far, so sorry again.  Other than that, things have been happening in PoGo and Wizards Unite.  PoGo has the Jirachi special research out and the Legendary Dogs are available for a few more days with a shiny chance along with Unowns spelling ULTRA out in 10km eggs.  Next week is a shiny Mewtwo chance and the following week 5th gen starts to come out.

For Wizards Unite there was an event last weekend where eggs were available through different colored 1km portkeys.  The rewards for that event will happen tomorrow with a dragon that’s not usually available in your region available for 3 hours.

Pokemon Masters app is also available now for your phones.  It’s a three vs three fight with gym leaders and other Pokémon trainers as your partners and opponents.  It’s fun but not as good as PoGo.

I spent a lot of the time rereading Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild, Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Black Sky, Yesterday’s Tomorrow, and am now rereading Ripples, & Another Fine Mess.  The new chapters are (for the last three weeks): An Essence of Silver and Steel (1st Sun & 2nd Sat), Compass of thy Soul (1st Mon, 1st Thurs, 2nd Mon, 2nd Wed & 3rd Thurs – [Last Chapter]), Headstart, Trump Card (Last 2 Chapters), Mauling Snarks (1st Mon, 1st Fri, 2nd Mon, 2nd Fri, 3rd Mon & 3rd Fri), Exodus, Worm – Justice For All (2 Chaps), Luna Lovegood and Dark Lord’s Diary (Last Chapter), Hybird Hive: Eat Shard (1st Wed, 2nd Wed & 3rd Wed), Supernatural Drabbles, New Beginnings (1st Fri, 2nd Mon & 3rd Fri), Trail by Fire (1st Fri, 2nd Mon & 3rd Fri), Relic of the Future (2nd Sat & 3rd Sat), The Importance of Intent: After the Credits (Last 2 Chapters 2nd Sat & 3rd Sun), The Unseen Hunt (2nd Sun & 3rd Sat), Souls of the Heart, By Your Side is Where I Belong, Taylor Varga (Omake & Interlude), Service with a Smile, Campione of the Raging Tides, Seerking Asylum, Mending the Knots, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, RWBY: Destiny of Remnant, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, I, Panacea, Less Than Zero, Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution, Playing Our Roles, Sealed Legacy, Broken Dreams, Go Away I’m Watching Porn, Flames, Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning, Short Story Drabbles & Taylor Hebert, magical girl at your service. (Yeah, a lot I know)

So, I’ve read a lot, but I did finally finish the quest I set, I really forget how long ago.  Here are the last stories from Mryddin de Celestis.  EvoNet is a Harry Potter and Stargate: SG1 crossover.  Harry has his magic sealed and is exiled to the muggle world for trying to give everyone magic.  His parents and siblings do nothing, and most are in favor.  He finds a way to give magic to everyone anyway and helps the muggles become the third player in the war.  Also he helps SG1 with things.

A Supernatural World full of Paranormal Activity is the newest rewrite of their Harry Potter and King of Bandit crossover.  Harry runs away at five because he’s neglected in favor of the ‘Girl-Who-Lived’.   He’s trained by the King of Bandit and becomes powerful.  He goes to help his sister before her sixth year and ends up with a harem (or will).

hacker Magician: Smoke is a Harry Potter fic where Harry is technologically savvy and learns how to hack magic.  He becomes Smoke in his fourth year and starts gathering a team to change the magical world.  All under Albus’ nose.

Triad: Elements of Balance is a multi-crossover with Naruto, DC Universe, Twilight and Harry Potter being the main ones.  Many girl-girl relationships in this one.  Bella becomes a mutant able to control the powers of the different Lanterns, Fem. Harry vows revenge when they try to marry her off to Ron and Fem Naruto abandons Konoha and then leaves the planet.  Yeah, it’s weird, but fun.

Stop the Monster is a Harry Potter story where Daphne Greengrass decides to help Fem Harry in fourth year.  She wants to stop Dumbles from controlling her.  Also, she likes her.  And Luna and Ginny also get together with Slytherins.

I Know Your Secret is a Harry Potter fic where Fleur knows Harry is a girl in disguise and decides to seduce her.  They create a school newspaper and use it to expose all of Dumbles and the other’s secrets.  It has a short (not complete) sequel called I know Your Secret 2: Foretold where Skulduggery Pleseant is introduced.  That is also the end of the quest, Haza!

Brother, My Brother is a Harry Potter & Final Fantasy VII crossover by sakurademonalchemist.  This is another one where it was in the compliation fic.  Genesis is Harry’s older brother who was accidentally sent to the world of FF VII.  Harry goes to find him and makes life better, and more interesting.  Now has three chapters.

Blood in the Water is Naruto fic by Umei no Mei.  Shisui is saved by an OC who is a Kiri ninja he knocked up.  This changes things.  It’s a crack-fic (meaning is going to be silly) and the author claims Shisui is Hoshigaki Shizuma’s father.

Mirror, Mirror is a Harry Potter one-shot by kb0.  It has Sirius asks a few questions and gets Harry to answer his mirror early.  This changes many things.

Rituals is a Harry Potter fic by Epeefencer.  Ginny is super smart at a young age and starts doing rituals to help and protect Harry.  Only the first chapter is out.

Yeah, that’s it for the week(s).  Sorry again, I’ll do my best so that it doesn’t happen again.  See you next week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

One Year Anniversary of the Blog!

Hello readers!  As you could tell from the title of this post, today is the one year anniversary of my blog!  Thanks for everyone’s support over this year!  So much has happened, both with the blog and my life since then.  I’ll make it nice and long post for everyone today!

The HP: Wizard’s Unite app is having an event for the next few days in preparation for the start of Hogwarts (Sept 1st if you didn’t know).  You’ll be able to find a student from each of the houses to save out in the wild and following the event tasks and getting 5 Portkeys you’ll be able to get everything (it’s not hard, I just have the Portkeys left myself).  Also tomorrow is the Shiny Suicune event on PoGo.  For three hours all gyms will have Suicune and there’ll be a Shiny chance!

This week was mostly rereading stories that I’ll talk about later, but I did reread a little of Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, The Unseen Hunt, Compass of thy Soul (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Celestial Worm, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Trail by Fire, Short Story Drabbles, New Beginnings & Famiglia Drabbles.

First, I’ll talk about a web novel, that’s now a light novel I’ve been reading called ‘I Said Make My Abilities Average!’  It’s about a genius recent high school graduate who died saving a young girl from being killed by ‘Trunk-kun’ (lol, it seems many isekai (transported other world) stories happen because of a trunk and now it’s a meme).  God allows her to be reincarnated with her memories because the girl she saved will help humanity later in life.  She asks for her abilities to be average because she received too much attention and sadness for being a genius.  Needless to say, God averaged everything from all races, not just humanity… Thus began Mile’s (her new name from a little while in) amusingly ‘average’ life.  It’s fun and will be animated soon!

I started reading Mirrored Dimensions as part of the Myrddin de Celestis Quest.  It’s a rewrite of Burst Realities with Stephanie from Skulduggery Pleasant series as his main girl instead of Ginny.  It’s okay, but pretty much the same as before.

I also read more (recently, not just this week) from White Angel of Auralon.  How Harry Turned Hogwarts Around is a Harry Potter fic where Harry goes back in time to make things better.  He gets a mastery in Potions and becomes the potion professor instead of Snape.  Things are changed, but it’s kinda bland.

Liliko is a one-shot Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  Kushina is taken from her deathbed and dragged into past and deaged.  She’s forced in to the role of Lily Evans and eventually forced to marry James.  This is her story about trying to escape and return home.

Overheard Conversations is Harry Potter fic.  It’s a two-chapter year one fic where Harry overhears McGonagall and Flitwick talking about how he’s not trying hard enough and living up to his parents.  He takes this to heart and decides to change.

The Witches Conspiracy is another Harry Potter fic.  In it four women (Longbottom, McGonagall, Sprout and Figg) decide to help Harry before he goes to Hogwarts.  They invite him to an specialty school after his first report card.  He goes to school with Nevile and eventually others.  It goes through first year and is really interesting.

I also read some interesting Worm fics – Exodus is a Worm and Big Hero 6 crossover by Zaru.  Taylor at the end of Worm is cast into the realm where Hiro and Baymax are saving Calhan’s daughter.  They bring her back and she eventually recovers.  She joins them and things get interesting.  Yep, people start to trigger…

Taylor Hebert, magical girl at your service is a Worm fic with magical girl elements by Aurora Moon.  The ‘light’ Gods decide to help Earth win and infiltrate the Queen Administrator shard and make Taylor a magical girl while at camp.  It’s not far in and Taylor doesn’t really trust her animal guide, but it looks fun!

Jurassic Tinker is a Worm and Jurassic Park crossover by Geno515.  A DNA tinker Taylor ends up on another Earth be for Zion shows up.  She decides to help Hammond create his Jurassic Park.  When people start to trigger, she helps those she can.

Taking Control is a Harry Potter fic by fake a smile.  It’s a complete fic where Sirius helps Harry in his dreams to take control of his life after fifth year.  It’s a Harry/Ginny fic and Ron and Hermione aren’t their greatest selves in this fic.  Has slightly OP Harry, but not overly so.

Free Life is the sequel to Taking Control.  He’s taken control and now he’s free from Dumbledore, but Voldie is still around.  It was interesting but hasn’t been updated since 2011.  Sad since I read it long ago and was hoping for more.

I hadn’t mentioned it before, but I’m a singer.  I haven’t done much with it, but I went to a meeting of a barber shop quartet chorus this week.  It looks to be interesting.  Would y’all be interested in hearing me sing?  Leave a comment with a yay or nay.  If people are interested, I’ll see what I can do.

That’s all for this week.  Thanks again for a great year!  See you next week and as always May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Sad End to a Week

Hello everyone!  This week was cooler, and I didn’t work as much, but it was also sad.  A co-worker I didn’t know that well passed out and was taken to a hospital yesterday.  We were informed this morning that she didn’t make it.  I don’t know the circumstances as my bosses didn’t know, but there were some emotional outbursts trying to get the company to change some things.  I can understand, but I didn’t feel comfortable with them using what happened to her to try and change things.  I know that people will be looking into how what happened, happened, but things done emotionally in this sort of situation, don’t usually end up going the way you want.

Moving on from that, I finished Harry Potter and the Mutant Academy and reread more of Desperately Seeking Ranma and started rereading Seerking’s Asylum.  The new chapters this week were: Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mending the Knots, The Unseen Hunt, Seerking’s Asylum, Compass of thy Soul, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Short Story Drabbles (Tues & Fri), Trial by Fire (Tues & Fri), Cage, Price of Blood, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, The Healing Touch, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Titanfall, Taylor Varga, Ginny’s Plan, Under the Sea, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, It Gets Worse & Harry Potter and the Chance at a New Life.

There was a Community Day for both Wizard’s Unite and Pokémon GO over the weekend.  The WU one was more of a having more of everything than more of one (although 9 ¾’s foundables were more common in my opinon) and the PoGo one was one mudkip (I got 4).  PoGo also introduced Team GO Rocket and Shadow Pokemon this week.  You can Purify them and make them stronger.

*Spoiler Warning*

So, I saw the new Lion King over the weekend and it wasn’t bad, but it was essentially an almost exact copy of the original, just in ‘live action’.  They changed some of the dialogue and some scenes slightly, but no much.  They made the ‘Be Prepared’ song more of a speech and had Nala leave for the Pride Lands before Simba had his revelation.

That wasn’t to say that I didn’t like it, but I didn’t feel that I really needed to spend the money to see it in theaters.  My biggest problem with it is that in the later scenes, I couldn’t always tell Nala and Sarabi apart.

*End Spoiler Warning*

So I decided to continue the Myrddin de Celestis quest this week.  Soul Armoury (and yes, that is how they spelled it) is a one-shot that I’m surprised wasn’t put in into Mystical Codex.  It’s a Harry Potter fic that has the Dursley’s dropping Harry at his grandparents soon after getting him and they go to Japan to get away Dumbles.  Not much here other than the info section has him at least getting together with the Greengrass sisters.

enLivened Player is a rewrite of at least the previously mentioned ‘Player.’ Sirius fakes his death and leaves a letter telling him (in double speak) and Harry decides to take control of his life (and do as many girls as he can).  He does become a vampire in this one.  There’s also a bit of DC Universe crossover at the end.

Cybertech: War of Evolution is a Marvel and Harry Potter crossover.  It has Harry abandoned with the Dursleys because of a prophecy saying he’ll reveal the Magical World.  He gets away from them and becomes a bigshot tech person.  He finds the Magical World and his twin sister while becoming a superhero and decides to reveal it.

Cybertech: Open Worlds is the sequel and has it and the DC universe merging over a few years.  It’s not finished, and I’m not sure it will be (but maybe because they also were not put in Mystical Codex).  Harry (or Kyle as he renamed himself) goes to the DC universe to help with the ‘convergence’ and helps his younger self from that universe.

Armoured Skill is supposed to be a rewrite of Cybertech stories, but earlier in the Marvel universe.  It’s not really very long and Open Worlds has been updated more recently than this one so… yeah.  Same premise, he just ends up with his ‘grandmother’ and goes against the Magical World because they ‘kill’ his girlfriend (he puts her on ice in the hopes he can revive her).

That’s all I’ll talk about today!  Hope you have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key.

A Little Bit of Old and a Little Bit of New (Along with a Notice)

Hi, Readers!  Once again, it’s time for Matt’s ramblings and thoughts.  First things first, I might not post next week because I know I’ll be busy for the end of the week and weekend.  I might post Sunday but if not, I’ll post on the 5th.  So new thing with me, I’ve been working through a temp agency, but the company is hiring me now.  May not be a large increase in pay, but better benefits, so yay!  Mostly read more Taylor Varga (though I’m most re-caught up again), though I did start rereading Reality Bites Worm and Titanfall.  The new chapters this week are: An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, Taylor Varga (Omakes Sat & Wed), The Unseen Hunt, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Code Geass: Lionheart of the Rebellion, Issei – The Gaming Gear, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Cambion, Game On! 3 1 (3 chaps), Email Exchange, Tsunami, Bits & Bobs, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor & Seerking’s Asylum (Ginny’s Plan updated as I was writing, and I read it).

I remembered an older series that I watched and liked, and I figured I’d mention it here.  Saint Tail is about Meimi, a girl who goes to a catholic school (In Japan? Just thought about that and now unlikely it is).  Her father’s a magician and her best friend is a nun-in-training.  There’s just one thing that makes her different from her peers, she’s the phantom thief Saint Tail, who uses magic.  When her friend (the nun) hears about a situation where Saint Tail can steal to help someone (like they were stolen from or to help them from a situation they’re trying to fix), she tells Meimi and she goes to steal it.  However, Asuka Jr. (a classmate) has sworn to catch Saint Tail.  She facilitates this by sending him warning notes (why? Because she likes him of course!).  There are 43 episodes and 7 manga volumes.

Moving on to the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 61 is Friend or Foe.  It was a one-shot Hannah Montana story.  It’s a weird story with Hannah sleeping with Lilly and Mikayla.  I don’t know much about the show, but I wasn’t impressed with the story.

Chapter 62 is Starlight Breaker (why a Nanoha reference if it’s not a Nanoha story?).  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Star Trek crossover.  All Harry wanted to do was join Starfleet, but he was stolen away by the wizarding world and forced to stay.  One day he’s going to make first contact and join Starfleet!

Chapter 63 is Harry Evans and the Daemonic Stone.  It was a ten-chapter Harry Potter story.  I read this one when it was a regular story.  In it Neville is the BWL and Harry doesn’t know he’s a Potter (never really covered this).  At Hogwarts there are 5 houses (the 5th is a muggle-born house) and Pure-bloods start at 10 not 11 like the muggle-born, along with a year of day school before that.  Harry makes friends with Ginny on the train and convince her to join the 5th house with him.  They plan to change everything!  It’s a good story and I wish it was continued.  Chapter 64 is a remake called Harry Evans and the Daemonic Mirror.  It was only two-chapters and has a different 5th house, but that’s the main difference (other than meeting the Greengrassses).

Chapter 65 is It All Ends.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto Crossover.  In it six lonely children share a connection that allows them to see each other and communicate.  Harry, Ginny, Luna, Hinata, Naruto and Sasuke look to gain power and take back their lives.  Doesn’t really get far past intros and what their current situation is.

Chapter 66 is Harry Potter and the Ancient Deities.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter and Percy Jackson crossover.  Harry is a Half-blood, and it’s written like a memoir.  Doesn’t get much past some foreshadowing and ends right before he talks about how he discovered about his powers.

Chapter 67 is Lost Fate.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter (with some Hellsing parts) story.  Harry is attacked by Vernon after fifth year and decides to leave the wizarding world behind.  He’s attacked again by Death Eaters on the Knight Bus.  He’s saved by Alucard’s daughter who decides he’ll be her mate.  That’s it, pretty much.

Chapter 68 is Duel Nephilm.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter and Devil May Cry crossover.  Harry and his sister are born with devil’s and angel’s wings respectively.  Lily protects them from everyone until Voldie attacks.  Everyone clams his sister saved them, but Lily really overpowered him and took over his group.  Harry goes to live with ‘Aunt’ Bella who raises him.  Harry and his sister (who really dislikes their dad) meet for the first time at the World Cup.

Chapter 69 is Nine Tails.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter story.  Lily and her twin sons are saved by mother and son nine-tailed fox spirits.  Lily and Harry get the spirits sealed in them, but Dumbles decides Edward (the other twin) defeated Voldie.

Chapter 70 is Epic Chronicles.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Justice League crossover.  Harry tells the story as though chronicling it.  Harry saves Astoria Greengrass instead of Ginny from the Chamber.  He discovers his powers and eventually learns James Potter might not have been his father.  (It’s interesting why it’s Astoria and not Ginny).

Oh!  I almost forgot, the Harry Potter game from Niantic finally came out yesterday.  It’s Harry Potter: Wizard’s Unite.  It’s okay, but I honestly like Pokemon Go better.  I feel it should be better after 2 years of hype.   Just my opinion.

It’s been a good week and I’ll go and see Toy Story 4 at some point and talk about it next post.  See you next week or the week after!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key.
